Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry who is on a visit to Nigeria was corronated on Sunday evening upon his arrival.

Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has also revealed how former Nigeria international, Nwankwo Kanu thought him dribbling.

He described Kanu, a former teammate at Arsenal, as the most technically gifted African player he ever played with.

Henry revealed this at his unveiling as Guinness Nigeria PLC ambassador for the ‘Made of Black’ campaign which took place at the Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Sunday.

The France legend and his Nigerian counterpart, Kanu joined Arsenal in 1999 and spent five years as teammates, winning two Premier League titles (2002 and 2004) and two FA Cups (2002 and 2003) together.

Henry said, “First of all, let me say Lauren (Etame Mayer, former Cameroon international) was very good and I love Lauren to bits. But if you go down to technique, I have to give it to Kanu.

“It’s just the truth. Kanu was an underrated player, so humble, nice guy, everything about him was positive.

“We all know that famous turn (Kanu’s dribbling style) that he had, even watching him on television, I was learning (Kanu’s dribbling style). He was always good and a good guy too.

“Like I said, if we go down to technique, Kanu was very good. Kolo Toure was very tough, Lauren had good technique too until he was moved to right-back.”

The football legend was crowned the ‘Igwe of football’

Henry wore an Igbo attire as he was coronated at an event in Lagos.

The 40-year-old Frenchman is presently in the country to meet winners of the ‘Be a Front Row Fan’ Guiness made of black programme.
